  1. What Tests To Ask For

    Thank you so much & just in time too! His appt. is in 1/2 hour. Jackie
  2. Hi, My 17yo son has a dr. appt. tomorrow and I want him tested for celiac. What blood tests should be ordered? I want to make sure they don't miss any. Thanks!
  3. I have found that xanthan gum helps a recipe that is crumbly. For this recipe I would add 1/2 tsp. of xanthan gum in your dry ingredients. I don't use as much as most recipes call for because I think they turn out gummy if I use too much.
  4. Shopping Questions

    Regarding your question about eating breakfast out - you need to be aware that some restaurants use egg substitutes that can contain gluten.
  5. My family likes this Mexican style dip (although we eat it as a meal) that I make. Ground turkey cooked crumbled 1 can refried beans 1 jar salsa Mix beans and salsa into meat and heat it all up. I serve it with tortilla or corn chips and a salad.
  6. Eye Tic?

    When I was having this problem (before going gluten-free) my chiropractor suggested Vitamin B Complex and it helped. Maybe because of the malabsorption? BTW it was in my left eye too and I haven't had a problem since going gluten-free.
  7. Hi Kbabe1968, I have finally been mastering baking some gluten free recipes. The best ones I have found are on www.eatingglutenfree.com . I highly recommend the carrot cake, chocolate cake, and the pumpkin roll. People will never know that it's any different than any other homemade cake. Good luck
  8. Yogurt?

    Hi Johnsoniu, First thing I would like to stress - ALWAYS read the label - even if it's something that you've been buying right along. Sometimes they change the formulas just for the fun of it. I eat Yoplait and have not seen a flavor that has gluten, nor have I had problems with any of the flavors I've tried. Don't give up eventually you'll settle into a routine.
  9. Gluten Free Flour Mix

    Bette Hagman has 2 flour blends that I use. Featherlight mix 1 C rice flour 1 C corn starch 1 C tapioca starch 1 T potato flour (not starch) gluten-free mix 3 C rice flour 1 C potato starch (not flour) 1/2 C tapioca starch I found these and several great recipes on this website: www.eatingglutenfree.com
  10. The cc issue sounded way over the top when I first started eating gluten-free but after only 6 months I know when I've had even a trace of gluten. As people have already posted - be sure to check everything for gluten and eliminate any sources of cc along with an elimination diet. Keep being a loving and supportive guy. It does get easier.
  11. Omg The Mess I Made!

    I'm not sure why your bread didn't rise other than the suggestions already posted. But I did find out from another post (not sure what thread) that Xanthan gum has different strengths. I have found that with the Xanthan gum that I use I need to cut back a little or things turn out really gummy - this seems to have helped. The best success I have had with this bread is to use 1 1/2 cups Bette Hagman's fleatherlite mixture for the 1 1/4 gluten-free flour and 1/4 garfava flour . Keep trying even though it's frustrating - it's worth it when you end up with something edible!!
  12. The other day I happened to read the label on Nestle butterscotch chips (after I had eaten a handful) and it lists BARLEY PROTEIN as an ingredient. I was sick for 3 days - boy did I feel stupid . I'm sure I used them for making candy at Christmas and read the label. They seemed to be gluten-free from the label and I didn't have any trouble after eating the candy I made. Just a reminder to READ THE LABEL EVERYTIME because formulas do change.
  13. Ann1231, I can totally relate! My dd is 15 and my ds is 13. All three of us are now gluten-free. We are "on the road" constantly - meaning right after work we drive to sporting and music practices and events. We aren't staying over night but are on the road during dinner time. It can be difficult and time-consuming planning food. Here are some of my ideas & I would definitely welcome other ideas. - make tuna salad or chicken salad and scoop it with tortilla chips or freetos - gluten-free pizza packaged in individual servings and reheated - Yoplait yogurt and fruit cups - string cheese and lunch meat - fresh fruits and veggies - carnation instant breakfast drink (not premixed kind and not malt flavored) - homemade gluten-free muffins or cupcakes The best recipes I have found come from www.eatingglutenfree.com . It has taken quite a bit of practice and frustration. It also seems like I live in my kitchen but it's worth it.
  14. Is There A Way To Track A Thread?

    I've posted several times yesterday and today. I always click "enable e-mail notification of replies" but I haven't received any e-mails and there have been more posts on the thread after mine. Is there something wrong with my account?
  15. I was doing very well being gluten-free until recently. Guess I've become lax about it. I've accidentally gotten glutened several times in the last couple weeks. Has anyone found anything that relieves the bloating and pain? Gas-ex or anything. I look like I'm 6 months pregnant when I've been glutened and it's quite embarassing at work. My stomach makes all kinds of noises and the looking pregnant part isn't fun either. Any ideas would be great!
